05.29.14 - Rep. Strahorn: Energy Freeze Jeopardizes Economic Investment, Costs Consumers

 

On Wednesday, State Rep. Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton) voted against Senate Bill 310, legislation to suspend Ohio’s—by most accounts, successful—advanced energy standards. The bill makes Ohio the first state to reverse Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) by eliminating targets for advanced energy and freezing targets for renewable energy.

 
 

10.21.13 - Rep. Strahorn Applauds Approval For Medicaid Expansion

 

State Rep. Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton) applauded the state Controlling Board’s approval of funding for Medicaid expansion in Ohio today. The move to expand Medicaid to 138% of the federal poverty level is a fundamental component of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. The decision of the panel follows the GOP-controlled legislature’s 10 months of inaction and nine false, self-imposed deadlines. 

 
 

06.12.13 - Rep. Strahorn Advocates For Part-time Faculty Collective Bargaining Rights

 

State Rep. Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton) urged lawmakers on Tuesday to approve his legislation, House Bill 96, which would include part-time college faculty in the collective bargaining process at Ohio’s colleges and universities. Currently, part-time faculty and graduate assistants are not covered by Ohio’s Public Employee Collective Bargaining Law.

“Too many faculty members at our colleges and universities have no job security, or the promise of decent benefits and fair compensation,” Rep. Strahorn said. “Statistically, these employees account for about 52 percent of the workforce at our community colleges, regional and main university campuses, but their wages and conditions don’t reflect this reality. We need to add an element of fairness for those that do so much to educate our state’s future leaders and innovators.”
